Before now, rumours have peddled some information regarding the specifications of the upcoming phone.

The information says the phone would arrive with a top-centre positioned punch-hole display that supports a high refresh rate.

According to a recent report, the Redmi K40 may feature the smallest punch-hole ever seen on a smartphone.

The standard model of the Redmi K40 smartphone might feature the upcoming Dimensity 1200 or Snapdragon 7-series SoC.

Meanwhile, the higher variant of the phone would likely have the Snapdragon 888 mobile platform on board.

Last month, Redmi shared an image of the phone’s retail box; and it hints that the phone may arrive without a charger – a new trend Apple pioneered.

A couple of weeks ago, the brand revealed that the Redmi K40 series would offer the user the most-expensive flat display and a powerful processor.

The firm further mentioned that the device would house a battery with a capacity of more than 4,000mAh.

The Pro variant of the Redmi K40 may arrive in China with a starting price of 2,999 Yuan (~$464).

Speculations have it that the model numbers M2012K11AC and M2012K11C belong to the Redmi K40 and the Redmi K40 smartphones.

Recently, both devices got certified by the 3C authority of China. The 3C listing reveals that both smartphones are 5G-ready, and it is likely they support 33W fast charging.
